If I am new to yoga what are the best classes for me?
We recommend our Spiritual Warrior & Busy People class to most beginners because they offer a set sequence which allows new and seasoned practitioners to more readily notice their progress on the mat. We also recommend RestoraFlow, as it incorporates gentle flow yoga with extra time, modifications, and props to ensure proper alignment and a safe, accessible introduction to yoga. Our Candlelight Restorative Yoga class is another great option for beginners that are looking to experience a more passive practice. It features a sequence of postures that incorporate a number of props - blankets, blocks, straps, and bolsters - that provide full support to the body which allows for a deeper release and full relaxation. See our class descriptions here for more details
Does Revolution have showers?
Yes, we have 2 unisex showes. Soap, shampoo, and conditioner are provided. Bath towels are available to use, just ask the front desk.
Does Revolution play music during class?
Yes, our classes feature a wide variety music chosen by the teacher to reflect the energy, mood, and style of class.
What if I forgot my mat?
No problem! We have loaner mats that are available on a "first come first serve" basis. Our retail boutique also has a selection of mats for sale in a range of colors.
What is the minimum age to attend classes at Revolution?
Students must be at least 12 years of age to attend class.. Students ages 12-16 must attend class with a parent or guardian present in the class with them. All students under 18 years of age must have a parent signature on their liability waiver.
No children or anyone under the age of 16 is allowed to wait in the studio lobby unattended while a parent or guardian takes class.
Do teachers at Revolution offer physical adjustments and assistance during class?
We believe that physical adjustments and assistance can enrich a yoga practice when provided by knowledgeable and experienced teachers. While all of our teachers will use physical assistance to maintain safe alignment in class, we allow our teachers to determine the extent to which they use adjustments as they teach. If you prefer not to be physically adjusted or assisted please let the teacher know at the beginning of class.
What if I can’t do every posture?
None of us can “do” every posture! If you get lost during class, pause for a moment and watch other students. Feel free to take a meditative seat, child’s pose, or simply observe.
If I need to leave class early, can I leave before Savasana?
No one is required to stay the entire class; however it is highly encouraged to finish your practice with Savasana (the final relaxation posture). If you are unable to stay the entire class, please let the teacher know at the beginning of class. Before you leave the practice room, please quietly move into Savasana for 3-5 minutes before exiting the class. Please be as quiet and non-disruptive as possible if you must exit the room early.
What should I bring to class? What should I wear to class?
Please bring a mat, a towel for your body as you will sweat (normally hand-sized is appropriate), and any additional props you like to you that the studio does not already have. If you plan to shower after class then bring a change of clothes. For asana practice, it is important to dress appropriately. Do not wear see through clothes that reveal too much. Traditional gym clothes are fine, but keep in mind that we will be folding and moving so more form fitting clothing will allow for more range of movement.
